England's cricket selectors have included two newcomers in their squad of 14 for the 5th and final Ashes test against Australia starting on Wednesday night at the Oval in London.

All rounder Chris Woakes, who's already a one-day international, comes in for the injured Tim Bresnan, and the left-arm spinner Simon Kerrigan has been included as an extra option to support Graeme Swann on a pitch renowned for taking turn.

England also gave themselves additional fast bowling choices by including Chris Tremlett and Steven Finn, who was dropped after the 14-run first Test win over Australia at Trent Bridge.
